The ghost is going
down smooth

spirits invoke
spirits, there’s no
telling when
the muse will come

she’s such
a fussy lover

I can labor here
for hours
though I really can’t complain

I could relish her taste
for hours

until she comes
in colors mostly

take life slow

life is anything
that doesn’t involve
the outside
looking in

am I being too obscure?

let me make it plain

life is you and me
on a raft afloat
clinging to
